. >> nancy, thank you. >>> billionaire investor warren buffett on monday i asked him about the fiscal cliff. here is part of that interview. >> what happens if the fiscal cliff comes and happens? what will it do to our economy? >> i don't think it will do that much. i think people will assume a solution will be found quite promptly. it's a little like the debt ceiling question. people know -- the rest of the world may think we're idiotic at times but don't think we're going to commit suicide. so i think if -- i hope something gets worked out before january 1st. if it goes a little bit beyond that, i don't think -- >> if it's january 10th -- >> if you guaranteed me that the fiscal cliff, we would go past that, i wouldn't sell a share of stock today. >> you have confidence that in the end they will fix it? >> and that this economy works. >> he is confident of a deal huh? >> he really does. he believes there's a possibility -- he thinks it will take some time. first thing he wants to see is a minimum tax, which they can do now in terms of people who make more than a mi
are the affluent, aren't going to spend this year. that's bad. >> talk about warren buffett, always willing to stir the pot. op-ed in the "new york times" this morning, he says that the rich pay a lower tax rate on their incomes than the middle class does. it's a point he's made before. as robert frank points out, what mr. buffett does not mention is that, on average, very few americans actually pay their official tax rate. >> that's right. we're going to get into this a lot more on "street signs." people can read it on cnbc.com today. the other important point to make on this, it is just not a lot of money and it is not a lot of people. it is sort of a minor problem in the grand scheme of the economy. it is really about .1% of the taxpayers and it's maybe $5 billion to $10 billion a year. relative to a $1 trillion deficit -- not saying it's nothing, but it's just such a tiny amount -- >> people at his income level are paying that. >> i have to say, if we're going to have a big tax debate, let's have one that really matters, now about this warren buffett rule which won't raise enough revenue to mak
incumbent wealth. if you take the wealth of two admittedly hugely rich people, bill gates and warren buffett, their wealth is equal to the collective wealth of the bottom 40% of the income distribution in the united states. two got a very cool to the bottom 1 twenty million americans. that is pretty big. interestingly, this was a surprise. i sold my book to the publishers in september of 2008 just before the financial crisis and then the crisis happened and many people were sad and i had a particular reason for sorrow because i thought the entire premise of my book is gone. the superelite is over. this financial crisis has happened, surely this system is going to change completely and these superfortunes will be wiped out and there will be a real calibration. i wrote a new book proposal. but after six months i was talking to my publishers and we said actually, that proposal is still going to work. the data of borne that out. i would like to talk about it as the 1% recovery. if you look at -- it is true. if you look at the economic recovery, the numbers in terms of income distributions in 200
had warren buffett on the show yesterday. warren buffett said raising the top marginal tax rate to 39.6% wouldn't catch any of the top income earners in america. that it would not impact them at all. now why shouldn't republicans be focusing on that, the real political battle in washington today, instead of focusing on a battle they know they're going to lose, against a woman of color after they just got shellacked in the polls among people of color and females. why are they doing this? and, andrea, a bigger question, as we go to a new congress, is john mccain going to continue to have the disproportionate impact that he has on foreign policy in the republican senate caucus? mika and i talked to so many people over the past two, three years that say we want, republican senators, we want out of afghanistan but, you know what, we just sort of stay out of john's way. how many times have we heard that? >> a lot. it's disturbing. >> we hear it all the time. they stay out of his way. are they going to blindly follow and, again, i love and respect senator mccain, but i don't want my party to
that are starting to be built. so is the recovery real? warren buffett, the celebrated investor and the world's richest men says, yes. >> we have a large real estate brokerage firm. we have building supply companies. and we're seeing prices moving up somewhat. we're seeing demand improve. we're seeing the overhang of houses diminish. we're coming back. >> on the other hand, the former federal reserve chairman allen greenspan told me don't get excited yet. >> what's happening is real. it's slow. but we can exaggerate how big it is. but it's going, certainly going in the right direction. >> joining me now is chris maier from columbia business school. jonathan miller is the president and ceo of estate appraisal and consulting firm miller samuel. median home prices have risen for eight months in a row. the case schiller 20 city index up is five months in a row. you say don't look at the prices so much. >> i think looking at housing prices is the worst thing to look at. i think you want to look at activity levels. the reason we're seeing prices uptick is we're seeing foreclosure activity at a ligh
very much. >>> al sharpton, here is the issue. warren buffett saying this week to the president effectively, my words, not his, don't give in here. don't give in on taxes. threaten to go over the fiscal cliff. it's not going to kill the economy any worse. how does the president work his will here? how does he get to the kind of compromise that david cody wants and other ceos, while still saying i've won this election and i need to drive things in the direction i think is best? >> i think he's got to govern by the commitments made during the campaign. and i think he will. this is about fairness. why do we need to deal with the tax on the rich first? because we must assure americans we are dealing with fairness. we keep talking about shared sacrifice. there was not shared wealth and shared prosperity. so you're asking people that didn't enjoy the good times to share in paying for the tab that they never enjoyed. so i think that when we first deal with the taxes, as you raised in your first point, and then go from there talking about how we deal with entitlements and all, you have
.6% last december. that's the number of homes starting to be built. is the recovery real? warren buffett, self-developer and one of the world's richest men, says yes. >> we have building supply companies and we're seeing prices moving up somewhat, we're seeing demand improve, we're seeing the overhang of houses diminish, so we're coming back. >>n the other hand, the former federal reserve chairman alan greenspan told me, don't get excited yet. >> what's happening is real, it's slow, but we can exaggerate how big it is but it's certainly going in the right direction. >> joining me now is chris mayer, he's the professor and mayor of business school. jonathan, let me start with you. median home prices have risen for eight months in a row. the shiller index is up five months in a row. you say don't look at these prices so much. >> i think home prices is the worst thing to look at. the reason we're seeing prices uptick is we're seeing foreclosure activity at a lighter level than it would have been. banks discovered during the process while they held back on foreclosures, short sales were the
companies that will start raining cash. and if you were going to analyze them warren buffett style would be quite attractive. what are they and what are the key characteristics? >> we had a report out called raining cash and still raining cash over the last couple of years and we published a new report just a couple of weeks ago called macao's checklist. we're basically saying the reason why you should be owning these stocks going forward is because of the dividend yield. these stocks are generated a huge a free cash flow over the last couple years and now they're looking to pay quite high dividends of about 10%. so we think that's a strong reason to own the is to bes going forward. so it's hard to think about macao as a safe place to be, but as we've highlighted in the report and using buffett as a proxy, it takes a lot of the boxes. so the companies have strong balance sheets. they're basically net cash now. they have high 33% and also generating huge free cash throw. and if you think about the six companies in hong kong, you have three that pay down at that level. so we believe it's v
on "squawk" this morning. a number of gop lawmakers say they will reject the no-tax pledge. warren buffett taking a jab at norquist this morning in an op-ed in the "times." he says let's forget about the rich and ultrarich going on strike and stuffing ample funds under their mattresses if capital gains are increased. ultrarich will forever pursue investment opportunities. >> i thought that was right. i thought it was right. we always hear job creators. i started a lot of businesses. they never make any money at the beginning. i don't want -- a great line there. i don't want to be so successful i have to pay a lot of taxes. that's stupid. that's something from someone who never ran a business. the late george mcgovern where he discovered how hard it was to be a businessman, you don't create a job. you create a job for tremendous success but you accept losses at the beginning. you never take an investment and say i don't want to do that because i'm afraid i'll have to pay taxes. you just don't. >> regulation sort of dealing with a lot of red tape which we also hear about as an impediment. >>
already shrunk by nearly a fifth? >>> and warren buffett on tv this morning saying he wouldn't sell a single share of stock even if he was guaranteed the u.s. goes off the fiscal cliff. just wait until you hear who he thinks should be the treasury secretary. >> we'll begin of course with the deal of the day. conagra foods has agreed to acquire ralcorp for $5 billion. $90 a share in cash. 28% premium to the closing price on monday. kayla tausche reported on potential for a deal between the two companies back in 2011. it creates the largest private label food company in north america. this is a big deal. >> yes, it is. it's big in size in terms of what we've seen in this market. look how excited he is. and they finally got it done. it's been one as you pointed out that was around in 2011. they couldn't get it done. that is conagra. they walked away. ralcorp stock price fell dramatically. they split the post cereal division from ralcorp. the two trade separately. so you did have a company here that perhaps became a little more -- i wouldn't say vulnerable. not as if they were committed
reflected 19.6% of gdp. where are we today? you get different estimates. warren buffett said 15.5% yesterday is coming in as revenue. i have heard lower figures. that is the reality of what has happened. we have seen a decline in iraq -- in tax revenue and an increase in spending for a variety of reasons. if we are serious about deficit reduction, we have got to move back the golden 19.6%. let's talk for a minute about what has happened. the chairman of the appropriation committee. let's take a look at where the art today compared to where we were in fiscal year 2001 when the federal government ran a $128 billion surplus. compared to the 2001 figure, we are spending less on non- security concessionary spending than we were. the growth in spending has not been in the non-defense discretionary. the cost of security programs in that same time. has gone up 60%. the cost of mandatory programs is up 30%. i want to call your attention to one aspect progressives need to remind people. of the $1.50 trillion already in spending cuts, $900 billion comes from spending. we have given far more than when i
livestock and dairy markets. this is a stock with renewed focus because it is warren buffett's -- one of his latest additions. small stake but he did add. >> $143 million. "the journal" takes a crack at why you would want it. secular advances in need for global grain output, emerging markets and so ford. along his burlington northern play. he adds to the position down the road. it's only a 1% stake right now. >> where are we in terms of -- i know the company put outlook looking 5% increase for full year 2013 in equipment sales, 10% for the first quarter and $3.2 billion. how does that figure -- >> in line with what wall street was expecting. revenue guidance, growth guidance, that was a little stronger than was expected. this stock has had a monster run since its last earning report back in august. it's up 18% since the end of september. an outperformer relative to the broader market. the question is, is this a pullback, not only because the eps missed but also because they had a big run of late. . are people simply taking profits here? >> we don't talk a lot before greece because there's a
cannot caved in it. they want a mandate for increased taxes. yesterday, the billionaire investor warren buffett writing in the new york times says he thinks the country would do just fine if we do -- if we go over the fiscal cliff. on our line for independents, should we go of the fiscal cliff? caller: yes, i think we should. although people who want a budget reduction, it would save the country 4 trillion dollars. i was amazed at how fast the democrats adopted mitt romney's -- for these home deductions. these people want to go around saying obama, obama wally is cutting your social security and medicare in your home deductions are really happy. we are not in this for nothing. nobody cares about us because we want to be so proud of president obama. and let him defund social security. the democrats have no intention of ending the debt ceiling now, because they want to give away more democratic priorities. we hostages. when the republicans have not given anything yet, that is what you get here you get your priorities cut. because you did not say a word. so sit back in your house and yelle
, warren buffett said 16.5% and it is coming in as revenue and i have heard lower. spending, it is somewhere on the range of 22%-24%. to me, that is the reality of what is happening. a decline in revenue and an increase in spending for a variety of reasons we could go through. if we're serious about deficit reduction, we often -- we have to move back. the closer we can get to an 18% level as we bring down spending, the more likely we are to have a stable economy in the years ahead. let's talk about what has happened since the time when we did have our budget in balance. the chairman of the appropriations committee of dates the figures from time to time, but let's take a look at where we are today compared to where we were in fiscal year 2001 when the government actually ran a $128 billion surplus. compared to this figure, we are spending less on non-security discretionary spending than we were then. in other words, the growth in spending has not been in the non-defense discretionary accounts. second, the cost of security programs in that same time income since we were last i
